I Wonder
The Willowz Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

I'm laugin' but you're laughin' at me.
And I think oh how could this be?
And I wonder...
If it could be the same.
If it could be the same.

I look around and I close my eyes
Just for a second and begin to cry
And I wonder...
If it could be the saaaaame...
If it could be the same.
If it could be the saa-a-ame
If it could be the same
It's not a shame.

My songs, they mean things to me,
Even if you can't see.
And I wonder
If it could be the same.
If it could be the same.

Suffocatin' like Brian Jones.
They must be more clear...
Set me freeeeee...
Please set me free.
Please set me free-e-e.
Please set me free.
Please set me free.

And near the tide
Seems good to me.
But things in life, they ain't for freeee
They ain't for free...
They ain't for free.

Have an urge deeper than me
To quit school and just be free
And I wonder.
If it could be the same...
If it could be the same.
If it could be the saa-a-ame
If it could be the same.
It's not a shame.

I wrote a new song and no one cares.
They must be more cleeeaar.
Set me freeee.
Please set me free.
Please set me free-e-e




Please set me free.
Please set me free.

Overall Meaning

The Willowz's "I Wonder" is a song about feeling alienated and misunderstood. The lyrics describe the frustration of being laughed at and not having one's emotions, particularly tied to music, taken seriously by others. The line "My songs, they mean things to me, even if you can't see" highlights this feeling of personal attachment and meaning to one's creative output. There is a sense of longing for understanding and a hope that things could be different or "the same" for the singer.


The line "Suffocatin' like Brian Jones" is a reference to the founding member of The Rolling Stones who died tragically in 1969. While open to interpretation, it could be seen as a metaphor for feeling trapped or stifled creatively like Jones may have felt towards the end of his life. The verse about the singer's urge to quit school and be free suggests a desire to pursue art and music without societal expectations or constraints.

@FaerieCrone ... Music is not a Display of talent. its called Expression ... Its not a talent contest , ... a good song needs to deliver a feeling or an idea , It doesnt have to include a face melting solo and Perfect vocals ...
